Post I wanta be on Monster Garage!

I watched Monster Garage on TV last night where they took a stock ambulance an made it a wheelstanding dragster. I love that kind of stuff. Any one else watch?

Cool

Jesse has the JOB for sure! Saw the previews on the Ambulance, looked COOL. I watch a lot of his buildups, he's got a great show.

I love that show. It makes me laugh. The one where they turned the 5.0 into a lawnmover. LOLOL <img src="graemlins/sweat.gif" border="0" alt="[sweat]" />

The show is cool, but they waist crazy amounts of money to buy the cars and get the paint done. They blow like $50k on one episode not including the $3000 build cash. Most of the guys they have on the show are Jesse James buds or they sent the show a letter and resume. Some of the guys I see show up to work on the show I have to wonder about like that plastic sergeon that was on one of the shows. My fav would have to be the package launcher. Nothing like hurling a 50lb fragile box 100ft into the air, but I'm byass they use my kind of weapons Come to think of it I think UPS must have some of these toys because they break some things that I would have thought was unbreakable...

I watch the show just to see if they can do it. But Madd Syntst Jesse does not show me anything except how he always makes the exhaust and the fact that he is the only one who ever gets to drive they. The guy on last nights show look as if he was getting P.O'd cause he did not get to ride in it.

I hate the fact that the whole entire show is run around Jesse. But I love the show as a whole.

Yes Jesse build some wild bikes...maybe the best. But yes Jesse has a king size attitude also, I cant believe his head fits through the door. Neat show though. Is it just me or does anyone else see the same thing?

if I could build as bad a bike as j.j. does, ALL by hand, I would probably be a ***** too. but he does make a ****** bike. but for $60k, i'll buy the stuff and make it myself.oh yeah, I could take him. if he wanted to box. <img src="graemlins/boxing.gif" border="0" alt="[boxing]" /> but you gotta like what they do on the show. i like it better than junkyardwars.

When I first saw the special about him and the bikes, it was pretty decent. Now I don't know whether it's me watching his shows more or the fact that his attitude is changing. But I figure from all the TV publicity he's had lately it's really went to his head. I think he is starting to get real arrogant. He really shows his *** when something doesn't go his way. Anyways I like to watch the show.

Sorry, but I think Jesse's a candyass, and I agree with Madd, he doesn't show me anything. As far as his bikes go, very nice, but I don't have near the admiration for them as I do for something "REAL".

Meanmachine, there are many bike builders out there that are just as good or better that do it for the neighborhood boys or the club brothers. Jesse James is just so hot because of his very distant relation to Jesse James the outlaw...which I never really seen any prrof of considering hundred of thousands of people claim that every year. Hes not a bad guy, I've seen worse, but his popularity and reconition from the "stars" has definatly gone to his cranium.
